On a current scrolling landing page we are building we use a timeline to control animations up and down the page. The scrollTo plugin is used to move the page up and down as the user scrolls. The main navigation at the top then seeks to specific parts of the timeline.
On IE browsers, when we do this seek() or pause(), it quickly flashes through the skipped content. On Chrome or Firefox the timeline advances to that spot with no problems.
This codepen example shows the problem in an abbreviated form. When a click is fired on the link at the top, we utilize a scrollTop function to move the window to the correct position. After two seconds we advance the timeline to the state that would match the window position. In Chrome and Firefox this seek is not noticeable. In IE browsers (tested in IE9, 10, and 11) the content between the top of the page and the new position flashes by. Watch the section h1 carefully to see it.
Any ideas on how to stop the seek from showing some of the steps in between a scrollTo tween in IE?
